Our curriculum is characterized by understanding the unique needs of each child, co-creation with the children, building a vibrant classroom community and strong partnerships with the parents. Our educational framework, called Sheva (which is the Hebrew word for the number seven) outlines a vision of excellence in Jewish early childhood education, serving as a guidepost to position JCC early childhood centers of excellence in their communities, binding them together across the continent. Sheva: Resource Guide for Classroom Educators is an important guidepost for the work of the Educator.
Our teachers are supported in their professionally development through seven professional development days per year with fellow staff from our four early learning centers, as well as opportunities for specialized skill development.
JCC teachers bring warmth, patience, and understanding to the classroom every day, encouraging our children to learn and grow. Teachers in our programs are committed to making our schools successful. They know that creating meaningful relationships with children, families, other teachers and our leadership plays a critical role in our planning and provide impactful, joyful experiences which foster capable, happy children.
